Robin Red Breast in a Fruitless Pear Tree


I took this picture from the kitchen of our home through the back window.  I’m not a photographer, but when I posted this on Facebook, I got a compliment and so I thought I’d share it with all of you.  The birds are having fun eating the berries from my fruitless pear tree.

I’m snowed in today.  Above are pictures of my front door and back yard.  Just a few inches.  Not so bad really, but this is Texas, and the people here barely know what snow is, but we are becoming very familiar with it in these past few years.  And since we are above and below freezing a lot, the snow melts and re-freezes and becomes ice, a terrible situation for roads.

The news advises us not to get out unless it is absolutely necessary.  Not going to work.

At least we don’t have to deal with this: (Got the following picture online somewhere. I think it’s in Oregon.)
